A HOUSING development in Sale has collected three major housebuilding awards in recent months.

The development was awarded a prestigious United Kingdom Property Award in October. This month The Place has been awarded two prestigious national awards at the What House? Awards 2017, considered to be the ‘Oscars’ of the housebuilding sector.

The awards have been made to Altrincham-based Altin Homes for The Place, the luxury developer’s Northenden Road development in Sale.

The site picked up the UK Property Award in the Residential Development category for Cheshire. It was also shortlisted as a finalist in the Northern Design Awards in the Residential Development category. To crown it all, The Place was presented with the awards for Best House of the Year and Best Development at the What House? awards.

The Place consists of 24 contemporary four and five bedroom homes which offer a 21st Century interpretation of the traditional Victorian homes seen in the local area. Designed by leading architects, Calderpeel, the homes boast stunning elevations with large clerestory feature windows and steep pitched roofs.

Altin Homes last won a What House? award in 2014 for a new build home in Timperley and were thrilled to win again at this year’s ceremony.

In the Best House category, the judges were looking for ‘a middle-market house with that something extra – a high quality family home of exceptional standard. A house that combines comfortable family living at a realistic price, but with the edge to lift if above its competitors.’

For Best Development the criteria stated: ‘The best development in Britain. A stylish mix of original designs, top quality site layout and landscaping, a variety of external elevations and plenty of design flair inside and out.’

Commenting on their success, Yousef Mousavi, design director of Altin Homes said, “We are absolutely delighted to have won these three prestigious awards for our development in Sale.

“The Place is, quite rightly, up there with the best of the best. In making these awards to us the various judges recognise that The Place and properties we are building there are something special.”
